Gary Barlow has offered to be Blackpool's knight in shining armour after The Script were forced to pull out of this year's Illuminations concert.
The Irish band said it was "with deepest regret" that they had to cancel the gig on the 30 August and another at the Leeds Academy the day before "due to a sudden serious family illness".
The X Factor judge wrote on Twitter, "I hear Blackpool are looking for someone to switch the lights on this year? If they'd write a cheque to Children in Need I'd do it?"
